Do you know who grew that?

 

Meet your Farmer

We do.

Here at A&L, we do everything we can to buy as much locally grown and raised product as possible.  When we have to go outside our home area, we do everything we can to source from small purveyors that are making only the best products.  Near or far, rest assured that all of our purveyors have the same high standards as we do for the things they produce and sell.

As we meet and begin working with new farms & purveyors we will post about them here! Check back often to see who's new, or meet the people that made last night's dinner!

Relax

We want you to feel right at home here at A&L Mountainside!  We often feel overwhelmed by the loud, party atmosphere of many aprés ski events.  Not everyone wants blasting music and light beer.  To those of you who are looking for something a bit more refined: Welcome to our home.  At A&L we strive to bring you the feel of an alpine getaway, where you and your friends can share simple, delicious food and a great conversation in an warm and welcoming environment.  Stay a while, won't you?

The highest quality, Locally

From their “About us” :

Located along the Kennebec River in Norridgewock, Maine, Steelbow Farm grows fresh, nutritious vegetables of the highest quality.

We grow with community in mind. We believe that great food is an integral part of enduring relationships. Currently we cultivate two acres, intensively, organically, and sustainably. Our farming practices are intentional and deliberate. We do not use chemical pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. We farm with the health of the soil in mind, adding organic matter via cover crops and compost. We avoid tilling, in order to keep microbial life thriving. Our hands are our most cherished tools. We have simple goals; feed good people good food and care for the land so it will be happy and healthy for generations to come.

White’s Farm

Today, most commercial farmers raise pigs inside barns where they are fed grain and given antibiotics and hormones or drugs to speed growth. The pigs on White’s farm are raised outdoors. They roam and root on 120 acres of farm land without drugs, hormones or antibiotics. Their natural pork is much better tasting and better for your health. They make 5 different types of all natural, nitrate free salami by hand, themselves, with family recipes.The spices are 100% organic. If you are looking for local, New England authentic salami, this is it. Learn more about White’s Farm here.

Hahn’s End

Debbie Hahn makes what is probably the best blue cheese I’ve ever had, right here in Maine (Phippsburg, to be exact).

Sandy Lang wrote about her for the Maine Mag several years ago:

“…I ask to see the cheese cave, and Debbie obliges, leading the way downstairs to a room with a concrete floor and one below-ground wall cut into the rock and ledge that she says helps keep the room naturally cool and the humidity at about 95 percent. Neatly arranged on racks, the 400 or so rounds weigh in at about ten pounds each and look like flour-dusted loaves of bread.

…I’m in luck, .... She cuts into a gorgeous, tall wedge of her Bleu Velvet that’s veined with inky streaks and tastes tangy and sharp, and is as rich as butter.

Debbie is humble about the wonderful cheese she makes. Instead, she’d rather talk of Maine’s impressive slow food movement, the diverse farmland climates from the ocean to the mountains, the new crop of enthusiastic young farmers, and the markets and restaurants that support local food”
